In the Médoc, Château Lagrange is one of the iconic references in the Saint-Julien appellation. The property boasts ancient origins dating back to Gallo-Roman times, when the estate housed the "Villa Rustica". It was back then that the Order of the Templars first began producing wine at the property. Château Lagrange experienced a real golden age in the 18th century and earned the title of 3rd Classified Growth in the Official Classification of 1855. It was in 1983 that Château Lagrange was acquired by the Japanese group Suntory and its president Keizo Saji. Following a major renovation and investment project carried out by the dynamic new team, Château Lagrange has become one of the top producers of the Médoc region.
Château Lagrange produces Saint-Julien wines from a 118-hectare vineyard, all in one piece. The vineyard enjoys a superb location on two gravelly hills. The vines are 45 years old on average and are planted in silica-gravelly soils with a clay-limestone subsoil. The vineyard enjoys a temperate climate with an oceanic influence.
The steady pace throughout the vegetative cycle confers a beautiful homogeneity between the grape varieties. The harvest was carried out from 29 September to 12 October.
Cabernet Sauvignon (75%)
Petit Verdot (8%).
The colour of this fine Saint-Julien is dark with purple highlights.
The nose has a beautiful aromatic purity and blends elegant fruity fragrances (raspberry, cherry) with subtle toasted notes.
The attack is ample, full and elegant, sustained by ripe and velvety tannins. The finish is persistent and flavoursome. A full, complex and well-balanced wine.
